ON OUR MINDS
Reflections That Teased Our Minds or Sprang from It
This is Archai, an open science platform that employs the idea of collective intelligence on finding a comprehensive solution to the problem of our changing climate.
We took our time to craft a vibrant identity, and we took even more time to carve out the details of a spirited ambition. Coupled with a solid organizational framework, this is the foundation for what will become a massively collective attempt to counter one of the most severe hazards humanity has ever faced: climate change. Now, we are excited to launch that venture.
This is about you and everybody else. This is about the individuals that can—collectively—unleash a force so powerful that it will uplift us to conquering even the most intricate problems.
The one ultimate building block for any knowledge-centered venture relying on the effort of a collective is the vast number of people participating. We call this collective of individuals, working groups, and other organizational entities the Community of Gifted Minds.
Albeit being a very speculative idea, we think that Archai must provide for two platforms that invigorate congenial collaboration and open exchange of information across the confines of established academic disciplines and other frontiers.
Moreover, these platforms will help in creating a shared consciousness for the challenges that we are confronted with.
On a very general level (not necessarily bound to the field of climate change), we will develop and implement technologies that allow tapping into the collective wisdom of many.
It is through the connection of a huge number of brains—biological and artificial—that these machines can help evoke solutions from totally unexpected origins, and they may even produce novel ideas on their own.
This is an outline of our Bounce Back ground initiative. Under it, we work towards building a system that incapacitates atmospheric greenhouse gases and allows for the attenuation of their combined global warming impact. That system must not compromise terrestrial and marine ecosystems.
The primary goal we are pursuing with Bounce Back is not hard to understand, and its significance in the context of climate change is evident: We want to provide for a system that downregulates the global warming response to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
This is an outline of our Super Powers ground initiative. Under it, we aspire to create an industrial apparatus for high-capacity, low-risk generation of electrical power. That power must be supplied in a constant (that is, non-intermittent), and carbon-neutral manner.
The primary goal we are pursuing with Super Powers is not hard to understand, and its significance in the context of climate change is evident: We want to provide for a massively potent source of electrical power that does not add to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
